I`ve just installed a preview version of win8 64b, and threw in a Radeon 9600 card. AMD Driver Autodetect correctly identifies my hardware with vendor-id 1002 (ATI) and Device_id 4150 (Radeon 9600 series), but leaves a blank field when suggesting best driver for download. The driver (which is correct) I manually downloaded does not detect the card.So I`m kinda stuck with correctly detected hardware I cannot use.Any suggestions?
Actually, the problem is that the driver is not digitally signed by AMD. Windows 8 absolutley will not install 64-bit kernal drivers unless they are signed. You *can* sign the driver yourself, but the process is a bit involved. See my post in this forum "Install Legacy drivers in Wondows 8". If you really get stuck, private email me and I'll provide more complete instructions.
This stuff should be easier...
